Does Snow Inventory v3.2 support TLS 1.2?
Does Snow Inventory v3.2 work with Windows Server 2016 and SQL Server 2016?
good question. The Snow Inventory 3.2 User Guide redirects to our current System Requirements, where Inventory 3.2 is missing. As this isn't our latest version of the product, I am not sure, whether we are testing this on SQL Server 2016. It might be hard to get an official statement from Snow.
Regarding TLS 1.2: What I can tell you is that TLS 1.2 is supported from Inventory Server 5.1.6. Hard to believe, it is supported by the replaced Inventory Server 3.2.
Anyone, who has other information or experiences, please share!
Thanks for your reply.
Do you know what is the end of life support date for v3.2 is?
as far as I know, Snow did not communicate a LDoS (Last Date of Support) for Snow Inventory 3. We are currently still supporting Inventory 3 environments and will continue to do so.
No, Inventory 3.2 does NOT support TLS 1.2. You will need to upgrade to version 5 to get that functionality.
Need to be a little careful with this statement are we talking about Agent to IDR, or IDP to SQL Database?
I say this because in the situation of Agent to IDR It does. Because the IDR for Snow Inventory 3.x uses IIS, the question that should be asked is "Does IIS support TLS 1.2?" and it does, of course. This is why you don't see much information about it in Snow, it's Microsoft's situation.
We have numerous servers that are restricted to using TLS 1.2 only. When I opened a support ticket about these servers not being able to send their inv files to the IDR a few months ago, Snow Support indicated that I3 uses TLS 1.1 and that this is not an issue with I5 agents.
This is all about the IDR and IIS. the agent leverages the IP stack on the system, and sense we are talking about windows, that is setup/controlled by the internet options MMC (which is a fancy way of saying Internet Explorer). And as long as that system can support TLK 1.2 you will be golden.
The get IIS support for TLS 1.2 is a LOT of articles on, because it is different for each and every version of IIS. that being said.
